    The best. Doesn't ask for any information, no ads, no stupid gimmicks, nothing! Chess gameplay is smooth and intuitive enough, and you get to analyse with one of the most powerful chess engines on planet earth. I'm happy that someone decided to be nice for a change and I'm thankful that this exists. Much respect for all you lichess devs! Really appreciate it!!

    video game Very good chess app. Probably the best. Some features I loved most: 1. Analysis section, gives the name of openings, which is helpful to remind/memorize openings, traps, gambits. 2. Clock! While playing with friends I used to have separate clock app. But the clock in this app is amazing, user defined. 3. Study feature of chess is great. Overall really good app! 5★

    lichess free online chess apk I'm Lichess fan prefer it than any other chess platform however I have one issue with this app. It seems like the puzzle with this app doesn't update or sync your current puzzle level. What i'm trying to say is when you do your puzzle on the pc (browser) the app puzzle will stay where you left them even tho you already finished the puzzle and won't even add any rating when you do complete them again. UPDATE: Bug still visible

    apk I am 60 play chess 55 years grandpa teach me. Tried every online chess. Only lichess has given me the most immersive experience of all. Chess is one of the oldest games. Shame to any making money from something that belongs to all. Lichess offers a free experience a full immersion unequaled by any other platform. It is clear and without dought the developers have a great genuine love of chess. Even more is their desire to share chess with all. THANK YOU ALL! At lichess.

    video oyunu This is a professionally built and operated chess site, recognized by the international chess federation and produced purely as a labor love. There is zero/zilch/none advertising of ANY kind, EVER. The format is perfect, super easy to use, and you are even awarded a bonafide chess rating,

    PROBLEMS AFTER LAST FEW UPDATES !! 1. ENORMOUS Ping !!!( ios version 9.3.5 - V4.15.0) it's old, but it was never high ping on it before until recently). 2. VOLUME media problem: android 6.0.1 - lichess V7.5.0 (can't change volume during a game or inside the app). 3. SLOW, LAGGY interface(loading times, search for an opponent, click to see someone's profile, search players, everything!!) Please resolve it.

    Y does the rating decrease is more when there is an increase in no. Of games......,,, But rating increase is less compared to loss of rating....., Why.,.,, I was been trying to improve my rating, but 2 wins and a lose gives me a decrease in overall rating..., Kindly change it .....,,☺️☺️☺️

    Lichess is great for learners, you can also😂😂 play with friends but it takes awhile to send to your opponent otherwise definitely I would recommend this! I see lots of people with fake looking names they might be real but my guess is that names like this- Chris Christopher aren't real 😂😂

  9. .-avatar



    Best place to challenge other players! BUG: If you "Create a Game" with a "Custom" "Raiting Range", the app respects the raiting limits. But selecting "New Opponent" from the menu at the end of the game will not respect the limits.

    Best chess app on the market. Features board analyzer, which allows for custom figure positioning, quite a few chess engines, a lot of skins and a powerful matchmaking system. All of these come completely free and with absolutely no ads!

    I love lichess but there is a problem with this mobile app that causes me to miss press the squares twice a day, it's a very bad issue for a chess app. I'm sure this doesn't happen on mobile web as much often. I'm uninstalling and go back to use the web version on my phone browser instead. Sorry.

    I wait more times untill 30minutes, coz, I didnt know the opponent just resign, so I wait for nothing. I think, it'll be better if you give a notif when opponent resign so the player can find another opponent early.

    It's a nice app to play chess. It does what it says, but the fifth star is for what it does but doesn't say. There's a whole section for practice and exercise (n.b. you have to sign up), there are various game mode: limited time, only with some pieces, against an AI. THERE'S EVEN A CLOCK FOR REAL WORLD CHESS! Really, this app has everything you need to play chess. And I could go on for months. You like chesses? You wanna gain experience? So why are you esitating? Check out also the other apps.

    It's great. Thank you for making such an amazing quality product, and making it free and open-source. You have my support. I'd just suggest adding the analysis button on the bar directly for correspondence chess; I use it quite a lot and it'd remove a click. I don't personally use the notes or turn board options. Ah and maybe extend the chatbox message length limit. Keep it up!

    Who says perfect doesn't exist? Here it is. It has countless features and themes. It has everything what you need. Just one suggestion from me, add one more option in app "Play via Bluetooth". I don't need it but It could be helpful for those who have no internet connection but want to play with friends. Please rate this app and give 5 stars, it deserves to be appeared in the top of Playstore while searching for chess apps. Thanks! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  70. Krishna-avatar



    Great app! Free and open source. No ads, just pure chess. Free chess analysis with a chess engine is so useful. Different game modes are really fun as well. One improvement would be to sort out the 'play with friends' when you send a link. Sometimes one person opens a link and the game is perpetually loading or it won't recognize another player has even opened the link, even though they have. Thankfully it still works by reopening the app most of the time or with another link.

  71. Vishal-avatar



    Love the app. Everything's free (for real). The only thing they need to improve is the inbox feature. They could build something similar on how we send and receive normal texts on our mobile. That'd be great. For some reason, the puzzles rating doesn't get updated. The same puzzles keeps appearing.. Please fix this.

    It's a nice app, open source and free. Got some good puzzles and a fairly large user base. Does have some issues though, tends to freeze and become unresponsive occasionally. Also sometimes doesn't recognise that it's your move and only let's you premove instead of actually moving. Needs a force stop to resolve these issues, but doesn't render the app unusable, it's just a bit annoying

  76. Jason Bruderer-avatar

    Jason Bruderer


    I love this game and this app, one of my favorite parts are the puzzles though. About two months ago I started experiencing this bug where when I'm logged in it always gives me the same most popular puzzles again and again and again. It doesn't do this when I'm logged out though. I thought this bug would be critical enough that it the devs would fix it within two months, but here we are. I'll change my rating when this bug is fixed.

    The best Chess app out there period.Various game modes are available on top of that you can even change the background and the board theme and the app is fully free without any adds and most important you can analyse your games to understand what mistakes you made . But a few areas for improvement are still there. But still the best Chess app out there.

    I've gone from 50 puzzles per day to 3 per week only because of I KEEP GETTING SENT THE SAME ANNOYING 50 PUZZLES EACH TIME I'M LOGGED IN. I've solved the same 50 puzzles a billion times at this point. It's very annoying. Only mixes them up when I log off and have to use up precious for each because it doesn't save them when offline. I don't know. I can't take it anymore. LiChess used to be and is better than this!. DO SOMETHING!!!

  82. Martin Cohen-avatar

    Martin Cohen


    Useless for blitz as the app doesn't respond invariably, tesulting in piece freeze and piece slips. Considering most people play blitz this would appear to be a major design flaw. App goes from bad to worse. Bad connections are punished with five hour temporary bans !!!!! Clearly, they're not open for business. Worse than ever. Complete garbage on phone. Absolute decline...Still rubbish. This is even worse than I thought. Games are now rigged. Won't let you move against certain opponents.

    My time here has been really great. I like how the opponents are equally matched when a new match is being held. The tournament page is kinda wacky cause ever time I accidentally go out of the tournament, I have a hard time finding out the tournament title. If you fix that, I'll love it

    Great website, but this app resigns my games "white/black has left the game" if the app crashes, ifreezes, is closed, loses connection, etc. Not every time, but enough to be incredibly annoying. These are games with 5+ minutes left on the clock.

    Hi, Team Lichess! Recently, I am experiencing some problems with your app. I already messaged you on Twitter re this issue. At times, when promoting, THE OPTIONS FOR PROMOTION SUDDENLY DISAPPEAR. As it happened, I CANNOT DO ANYTHING, my time expired, and I lost on time in a much better position. This is very frustrating on my part. Also, this isn't the first occassion this issue has inconvenienced me in recent months. I am hoping that you may be able to address this issue. Thanks and kudos!

  93. Erick Flynn-avatar

    Erick Flynn


    This is the best chess app I have ever played. Features bots to play by yourself or even a friend online. You can play against randoms and there's a lot of people always playing. I get lost sometimes, playing hours in just one sitting. You can watch others play as well. Lots of tutorials and everything is free. Personalization is great with the choice of the backgrounds and pieces to choose from. No pop-up adds or promotions. Can play both on computer or mobile. User friendly, would recommend.

  94. Pedro Quaresma-avatar

    Rampant cheating. Admins seem to be more interested in punishing players whose clock runs out rather than the cheaters. To make things worse, you can't report a cheater on the app as it requires a link to the game, which you can't grab in the app except by emailing yourself the game which is absurd. Try chess24, it's much better.

  95. Toru Okada-avatar

    Toru Okada


    Probably the best free chess app available. Puzzles, online games, offline games against the computer. Still some bugs here and there. I just made a custom game and set the minimum rating to 2000 wanting to be crushed. I got a 1300 something instead (and won). Maybe next time I'll try minimum 1900. Edit: Also, sometimes an opponents move won't register until I leave the app and come back to it. I've watched my opponents time run out only to get a message that I've lost on time. Twice.

    Best online chess website there is, but this app leaves a lot to be desired. I can only ever seem to get one or two games in before there's a problem contacting the server. This makes playing tournaments pretty much impossible. Other than that, the look of the app is great and the navigation is pretty decent, too. But until this connectivity issue is fixed, I'd just avoid it.

    Lichess is best when it comes to detecting cheaters. Suddenly, 2 days ago, i am now not able to login. It is saying " request timeout. " i did everything. Worst is , lichess doesn't have a support.

    Good app so far. Just needs the timer fixed. You need to build the clock to work in fractions of a second. Eg. When I play bullet chess, if I play a move that is less than .5 of a second, I get awarded an extra second on my clock. I play with the expectation that we both have a minute on the clock, not that my opponent can add an infinite amount of time if they play fast enough.

    For some reason the menu buttons just don't work like 50% of the time. Makes it super frustrating when trying to hit the "new opponent" button and it just doesn't work for ages. On a Pixel 3a if it matters.

    Too buggy. Can't play on the app effectively, everytime I lose or resign the app locks me out and says I'm timed out for several hours. This time it has locked me out for a whole day. Used to love this app but won't be using it anymore, at least not until they fix these problems.

    My Lichess was fine but then on the previous update, I can't swipe the screen up anymore. It is stuck on one frame. I go to setting and pressed the pieces style and I tried to swipe downto see the others, but, then again, it did not work. Therefore, I cannot see and use all the other options. Please fix it. It ruined the app for me.

    The best chess site/app. By playing on lichess I improved at chess, and all for free. I'm thankful to lichess for being as charitable as it is, with no ads, no payments necessary and having the best site out there, all without cost. I'd recommend it

    I'm playing online chess since 2007 and I migrated to lichess in the end of 2018, it is by far the best place to practice and have fun, free of charge. I also would like to leave here my gratitude for the team of developers who are making an incredible job.

    me and my friends love it, I just wish it had a few more options a confirmation button option for searching for games would be nice. ive noticed that when changing menus, sometimes a game of blitz gets tapped, and I cant cancel it in time. and also, the board themes! the desktop version has wonderful options for the look of the board, I miss them on the app haha. Thank you for the great app though :)

    Although it's aesthetically better than the mobile web version, I still prefere to use this in the browser rather than in the app. The app lacks of some things like the graphs below puzzles and if you use it in the browser you can save storage space.

    Lichess is one my best app ever, I have been on lichess for over a year now .But this sudden update just spoils everything. I first noticed the screen wasn't showing in full, I couldn't search for friends,and after making a move my time still counts. The app now refuses to open, I haven't been able to log in for over a month now. Please bring back the old version. I now play chess on other chess application. Pls try to fix this. I miss lichess a lot

    The absolute best in basic chess apps out there. Play on the go with downloadable chess tactics, and use the over-the-board function too. Customize the board to your heart's content. Analyze all your matches with Stockfish. Best of all, it's all free (no premium!)

    The app was better before it got it's last update. Less lags before the update, better experience before as well. There are a few bugs when I play, especially shorter time controls, bullet and blitz. Like I make a move and it registers on the game and for 5 seconds or so my clock is still the one running down. I csnt click on a tournament link and open using the app...Also, on the app I am unable to click directly in to the tournaments featured on the home page. This wasn't the case before.

    I like the look and feel of the new lichess. When an opponent moves sometimes the sound comes and goes. This is very annoying especially in a bullet chess where sound is a crucial clue that your opponent has moved.

  114. arun-avatar



    Damn, never saw myself as a regular chess player until i started matching up with complete strangers. By the end of the game, win or lose, i know almost how they think. That's more addictive than any social network. App just works.

    I am facing serious problems here :- 1) Move confirmation feature does not working correctly. It take 1 to 2 minute to register a move. On top of that, until my move registered my clock keeps ticking. Which causes me huge pain when i lose due to Time's up. Fix it ASAP. 2) The app keep showing me a match result in the home window which i played weeks ago. Is this some kind of feature, then why it is not updating, why it is not showing me recent match result. That's it 1 star is deducted for each.

    Excellent! ! Just what I was looking for! Perfect chess app, complete with clock and everything. Also: everything is free.Just one issue: my opponent's clock ran out, and instead of giving me a win, it declared a draw!! This doesn't happen every time but happened to me once. Hope it doesn't happen again. Pls resolve the bug. Otherwise perfect app.

    Best chess app ever. I have tried many app to play chess, finally i tried lichess and removed all other chess apps from my phone. Simply awesome. Whenever I want to play in any mode i.e., blitz, classic, bullet there is always pairing with players around the world. Also training session is also good.

    Nice but slow and a lot of bugs. Sometimes pawn confirmstion doesnt work. Time pass but board is frozen... Edit: feel really frustrated my connection is bad so sometimes the game hink i left the game. Worst if someone call me during a game the app thinks i left the game. After 3 of these i'm banned for 4 hours !!!this really frustrate me for real. I don't have to get banned because i supposely "left the game". So why do we have a time count ? If we need absolutely to never leave the screen.

    This app is excellent it course, but it has flaws. An annoying number of the chess puzzles are terrible, and there's no way to filter them out based on ratings, which makes no sense. The board themes are strange: there's no straight ahead black + white, solid colors like red or blue + white. The newspaper theme should have darker blacks and a lighter background. The only theme that actually looks good is the green plastic, and maybe purple. It would be nice to have a better choice.

    Great app. Best Android chess app. My one complaint: I play mostly blitz, and I notice that during games when I have inferior material the opponents clock seems to run dramatically slower. End-of-game Blitz timing continues to be an issue. Just finished a game where a player made 10 moves with less than 3 seconds left. Numerous moves from my opponent did not take any game time according to clock. Needs to be addressed

    Awesome app, but I do have a small, random issue with it... when the app starts up, the logo appears stretched out. Again, incredibly minor and doesn't at all affect the great user experience.

    It's a nice app but please please fix the glitches . Im using a OnePlus phone and suddenly when I want to use some of the features like the clock the screen randomly blacks out. Once the glitches are fixed this rating will become a five star because in every other way this app is as close to perfect as can be. The quality of chess is fantastic . Absolutely everything about this app is perfect. But please fix the glitches. Yours sincerely. Dakshin

    I admire lichess for what it offered me so far since i started learning chess recently, but i can't reach any of the lessons through the app. It lack the elements in the learn submenu on the website like basics and practice which is the only thing i do now on lichess

  126. Ivan Petrov-avatar

    Ivan Petrov


    Earlier your app showed "low webview version" even if install the latest webview from google play (so, error in webview detection). So some elements weren't visible but overall the game worked. But, half year later I install your game again - and now, get a white screen after showing a knight logo, can't access the game at all. However, in a web browser your website works. Why is it so difficult to make a working app for Android 5.1 ?

    There is some bug in the app. When I go midway and rejoin I can't move the pieces precisely. Just randomly moves different pieces around where I touch and I am losing each of the time when this happens in critical situations.

    It's good but should be better Every time i switch apps to check something, it takes about 5-10s to reconnect. Happens even if i just pull down the notifications. When i have the move confirmation on, the confirmation button takes a split second to load and i keep hitting the message button. And what has been the worst, if i get a call and answer, when i get back after a minute, the opponent has claimed victory. I think the time limit for claiming victory should be extended to at least 2/3 min

    Fantastic platform for playing chess with people all over the world, really user-friendly. I recommend the 10min blitz game. Its the best average time game among the options available. (10min blitz =20 min total) Simply superb. PLEASE NEVER GO OUT OF BUSINESS AND DEFINITELY NEVEVER REGRESS TO ANYTHING LESS THAN WHAT YOU ARE RIGHT NOW. THIS HAS BEEN THE BEST PLATFORM I HAVE FOUND FOR PLAYING CHESS ONLINE/OFFLINE WITH PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

    Easily the best platform to play online chess on mobile, but as of late, I've had such trouble connecting to games. I used to be able to get into a game almost instantly, and now it takes quite a while to find a game. Still, lichess is the best way to play chess on the go.

    Fairly great app for people who like chess. Decent size community, fun modes, lots of flexability. It's perfect for playing with friends over long distances. I'd recomend it to any chess lover looking to up their game or otherwise. After you download come play me! 😋 username: joshywashy

    Whenever I accidentally disconnect from my phone they just ban me from playing this game without knowing the actual cause Lichess organisation only think that there are only 3 ways of player getting offline without resign but there are ample ways and one of them is network issue Kindly resolve this issue

  134. TYRO TUBER-avatar



    This is the best digital chess ever. But, I have a suggestion for the developers... If there would be the" live voice transfer feature" like " PUBG" rather than typing a message in chat section then it'd be too good infact best thing that you can do. I hope that you'll look into it or revert me with any drawback of my suggestion!! I'd love to give you 5 stars then. Thanking you (HARSH VARDHAN)

    Please, when my internet bandwidth is low, and the lichess server would not respond and within 5 seconds, it says after coming back to the game: I(White or Black) left the game. Please why not develop auto-resignation in a particular time, so that I can know how many seconds it will take for my loss. Sometimes this is why I dont like Lichess. At least give 50 seconds so that I can reset my wifi and come back and play, but just within 5 seconds I lose...Very disappointing...

  136. Shivam Mishra-avatar

    I want to suggest lichess team to indroduce an option for something like "maximum playing time per day" for every time controls specially like bullet or blitz, so that people who get addicted to playing blitz or bullets can control themselves.. This is my genuine request.. I didn't found any "feedback" type option in the app, so that I could write this over there.. That's why I wrote that here.. I hope my message would reach team in charge for lichess improvement.. Thankyou

    If someone about to get checkmate ,the losing person just not going to play a move and wait until the time runs out, I know theres a sing in features but its not protected from google play basically u giving ur passward to this app add a report system.

    Best app for chess hands down. It has eberything an has been my favorite for 2 years now. Only one thing with last update... can not toggle down some screens like for language selection etc. Also screen size might be too big for my cell and i dont know how to fix it. Is it possible to go back to previous versions? Otherwise this app is perfect.

    Pros: It is chess app = +5* Cons: -1 Need fast and continuous internet -2 Reconnection takes more time -3 Touch does not work in random games -4 Open chat box and then back button takes to previous game (instead of current match) -5 If you left game (due to any reason), it's better to start new game than wasting time to reopen running match -6 After sending message, chat box contains message in text area. you need to clear it before sending new messages -7 Etc (only 500 characters can be used)

    This app is getting annoying you get a timeout even unintentionally and they just ban you with stupid apologies the match making is terrible the app has good players and events but it needs some good customisation otherwise it's just a very mediocre feel you get while using it it misses out a lot of things

    Game is complete garbage. I have not played a single day without the game making a move that was not what I played. Time runs after I make my move and I've lost countless games where I make a move that the game makes and then I lose on time after the move has been made during my opponents turn. Developers said because their parents are closely related there is nothing they can do. Worst chess app there is. App is free and still feel like I'm being ripped off. Any other is better

    Good day Sir! For the new update, can you add also "view games" in offline mode, I mean, the game we played, so that we can review the game, even without paying data. Hopefully we can access the game we played even offline, for us to analyze it easily in the real chess board. Thank you 😊

    This app is getting worse with the updates. Now during gameplay some squares get frozen and i cant touch the pieces in them. The controls are clumsy. I hope it gets fixed and no need to complicate things. We just want to play chess, its simple.

  145. Shoof_-avatar



    The newest update broke scrolling in most places, after entering the messages and returning to the game the buttons, squares, pieces are registered one square up from where they're drawn (you have to click above the piece to activate it) and it helps if i leave the game and rejoin midgame, which makes <5min games pretty not cool. Also if i leave a 30+15 game to respond to a msg i dont believe the opponent should have an option to win the game after im not there for 30s.

    UX is terrible for the app. I want the option to turn off pretty much all other functions mid game except being able to touch/move pieces. Too easy to accidentally push top right to create new game in middle of a game. But you can't create new game since game is in progress! So why have that a selectable function? In bullet, too easy to lose on time accidentally pressing that. You really should have the option to disable that or other useless, mid game accidental presses.

    I would have given it a 5 start rating becoz it is by far the best mobile chess game. But for bullet chess players it's irritating becoz if bans you again and again for running out of time, while majority of the time you loose becoz you have run out of time. So I don't know what kinda logic is there but it's bizarre and very irritating.

    I prefer the mobile browser version over the app. Post game analysis works better via Chrome. Also, on Lichess mobile app, my phone's volume buttons control ringtone instead of media volume. If I open YouTube app the volume buttons control media volume. Volume buttons should control media volume when I'm in the app. Devs, please experiment on your end to diagnose and fix volume button integration and have a look at the differences between mobile chrome browser and app post game analysis.
